Add property to custom diemnstion

How to add a property to custom dimension.

Hi @nadir ,

Additional properties import is only possible for single value custom field dimensions.
You need to enable that possibility first by adding additional settings for the particular custom field in the Advanced settings for custom fields.
You may find out more about these details and the exact settings to be added here - Additional data import into Jira Issues cube.

You might also find some more ideas on improving your reports with additional data imports from this training video - Training videos on specific topics.

However, if you still get lost - please write to the eazyBI support team at, and we will gladly assist you.

I have this cutom diemension
data_type = “string”
dimension = true
separate_table = true
How to add properties to this diemension?

@nadir ,

​Adding extra properties to a custom dimension is not a one-step activity, considering it is extra to the custom.
First, you have to add these settings to the advanced import options as described in the documentation section in my previous post and perform double data import - once with the custom field deselected to remove the existing field and for the second time - reselected to be recreated as a dimension in a separate table.
​Then you may import additional properties for members of that dimension from an external data source.
​You may read the basics of importing data from external sources here - External data sources.

​You may read more about the additional data import in this community post - How to build profit & loss report with additional data import.
Please look closely at the section Rates import for a user​ - that most closely refers to your use case.
